Mental Radio
Experimental doc. | hdv | color | 42'17'' | Germany / | 2012
The film work by Tobias Yves Zintel integrates various genres such as performance, installation, music, and theater. He makes films in an idiosyncratic visual language, confronting us with scenes of grotesqueries, mysterious actions, and sublime universes. Mental Radio, the film?s title, is taken from the title of a book written in 1930 by Upton Sinclair, which describes the experiments conducted with his wife, who had telepathic powers. Besides the attempt to trace the inexplicable things in a family constellation, Zintel also grapples with the question of how to deal with the mentally ill in our society.
Tobias Yves Zintel, born in 1975 in Passau, lives and works in Berlin. He studied under Joseph Kosuth at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich.
